Launched in 2021 by the University of Hildesheim, Migration Lab Germany is a project that seeks to open up a space for thought, exploration and mutual encounter. Our focus is on the question of how migration, flight and related topics are taught and learned.
Migration Lab Germany connects individuals, groups and institutions active in the spheres of education, civil society and culture, including museums, schools, theatres, migrant organizations, civil society initiatives, memorial sites and theaters. Our objective is to explore the topic of migration with children, young people and adults in a variety of educational and artistic ways.
Our research team accompanies model projects, offers professional development seminars and supports interdisciplinary networking. With our migration-lab.net digital media archive, we present best practice models and educational media that address the topic of migration in new and innovative ways. In the future, our goal is to extend our network of project partners to the national and international sphere.
The project was initiated by the Center for Educational Integration at the University of Hildesheim.
Our partners in the U.S.
Re-Imagining Migration (RIM) is a U.S. non-profit organization that addresses the issue of migration with the aim of transferring relevant research into various fields of action in education and culture (schools, museums, etc.). In order to optimize this transfer, there is close interdisciplinary cooperation with relevant practitioners, institutions and networks, as well as scientific support from the Faculty of Education at Harvard University in Cambridge, USA.
